Aurora is the typical small town that has a very country feel. The people are generally nice, yet quiet. This town only has a few businesses, yet we support each other and encourage small businesses. Aurora is the kind of town where everybody knows everybody.

Aurora Is kind of a sleepy little town but hopefully it will expand soon.With 7,477 people, Aurora is the 111th most populated city in the state of Missouri out of 1,024 cities.
Aurora is my home town and I love that my children are going to grow up here. Aurora is a close nit community and over the last 10 years has really improved in community involvement.
